in there that i care deeply about. i've been the leading upon sor of extending renewable energy, for example. but what i guess is missing here in this equation is being able to actually implement the reform. i think the work that leader pelosi did, if it were focused on the bigger picture, if the administration made clear, for instance, that we were not going to have a deal unless we dealt with the debt limit, which has already been exceeded, i think there was an opportunity for us to get out of the squirrel cage that has trapped us for the last two years. i have huge respect for her efforts. it would not have passed the house were it not. she is a valuable ally and i think advisor to the president. i just think that this was an opportunity for us to go bigger and i hope that we don't miss an opportunity going forward to change how we do business. much of what we're arguing about here if we cut away the clutter and focus on how to improve government efficiency and tax fairness, is supported by the majority of the people and could find bipartisan support in congress, i think. >> one report st

. natural gas, energy exploration in this country is turning into a big tailwind. how much do you dismiss those, if at all? >> i think they're all great stories. second half 2013 could be excellent and growth could really accelerate. all the things you mentioned are important. i would also allow the fact that household debt to income is going to fall back by the end, we think of next year, back to the long-term equilibrium level. the health sector is healthy. raised a lot of capital. europe has stabilized. but the problem is the politics. it's hard to quantify the politics. and we've seen business confidence also move lower. so it's really all about washington. if we get some clarity on the fiscal side, i think growth next year could be much better than what we're looking at at the moment. >> that is a big if. joe, have a great new year's. see you in 2013. >> same to you, carl. >> the markets are set to open lower. the nasdaq closing in negative territory for the last five sessions. the major indices are still on track to end with gains. having the best year in 2010. the s&p 500 up more t
